Pip Newby is A&R Manager for Play It Again Sam in the UK, the frontline label of the [PIAS] Entertainment Group. He is responsible for the discovery, signing and development of acts for the label.

Play It Again Sam is home to acts as diverse as Editors, Enter Shikari, Agnes Obel and Ghostpoet.  

Prior to joining the [PIAS] team in 2011 Pip worked as A&R for Atlantic Records out of their London office, and ran his own label and music consultancy, Friends Vs Records, where he worked with acts such as The Joy Formidable, Fun., and Dinosaur Pile-Up.

Play It Again Sam has a strong reputation for working with a broad range of international acts across many different territories.  The label’s roster spans Europe, the US and beyond.  “As far as our A&R policy is concerned the borders between countries are becoming less and less important with regards to finding great music.  If an act’s music blows our mind, they’re hard working and show potential, we would be excited to work with them!”
